On Wednesday 15 November, the Shire held its annual Early Rates Incentive Prize Night at CU@Park Restaurant in Gingin where 10 lucky early ratepayers participated in a fun ‘mystery’ prize presentation and social networking event.

The prizes, which were made up from cash and in-kind sponsorship from local and regional businesses, ranged in value from $1,000 to $5,000 with a total value of $19,200.

This is the 10th year the Shire has conducted an Early Rates Incentive Scheme and this year 65% of rates paid on or before 10 October, which is an increase over previous years and is well over half of total expected rates revenue – so a big thank you to everyone who paid their rates early.

We would like to congratulate the following winners:

  • John & Margaret Goodacre – major prize winners
  • Henry & Margaret Morris
  • Humfrey & Co Pty Ltd – represented by proxy Tom Cabassi
  • Mark Ladny – represented by Richard & June Ladny
  • Adrienne Pellegrini
  • Newton Heights Pty Ltd – represented by Michael & Maria Skender
  • Giovanni & Anna Deceglie
  • Stephen & Elizabeth Ferguson
  • Douglas McFarlane & Ashe Brewer
  • Kim Gravenall

Winner Roy Humfrey of Humfrey & Co donated his prize of $1,500 to West Australian Shalom Group which was an unexpected and very generous gesture.
